    I wrote, and read, two rhymes for my granddaughter's - one for her preschool class and then another for her first grade class. That is as far as I gone. I wish you the best in your endeavors.

    Lovely rhyme! BobGrantKC Excellent technique! Awesome poem! One of your finest! I also write children's rhymes. Many of my story poems are for children . . . some are not. Until recently it was my dream to get one of them published as a book with nice pictures and illustrations! You should seriously look into that! Again great job!

    Maybe - but I really have "no idea" why this one got some legs?

    Thank you - this is an oldie. I sort of quit posting here - felt that I had overrun my limited talents.

    You have an amazing and a beautiful idea about our nature. You simply allow us to appreciate trees in your poem. I like your style!

    A noble write, BG, and a noble endeavor. To be a tree.

    This is a very good children's poem, and I can picture the illustrations (though I could not draw them) in my head, too. I know children's rhymes is something you do, BobGrant (your RZ Group gave it away) and the children's poetry of yours I've read is much better than some I bought for my children when they were little. If you don't illustrate you should seriously look for a collaborator.

    This sounds like a children's book! I can imagine the illustrations (which is good because I don't know how to draw). Have you considered using it that way?
